The '''God Hand''' are the main antagonists of the manga and anime ''Berserk'' and are a powerful group of five reality-warping angels (or demons), each corresponding to a finger or thumb, directly below the Idea of Evil in power and authority. All of them were originally humans who were chosen by the [[Idea of Evil]] to serve its purpose of giving reason for humanity's suffering. They each possessed and used a behelit only Griffith used the Behelit (The Egg of the King) in order to transcend their humanity. It is unknown whether there are five Crimson Behelits or whether the same one came to each of them in turn.

The God Hand can't take corporeal form in the mortal plane. If they do appear there, it is a construct, formed by whatever is at hand. They can also appear when summoned by a Behelit for the purpose of creating Apostles or during the Eclipse which happens only once every 216 years and marks the birth of a new God Hand, wherein there is an area that acts as a junction in between the astral realm and the human realm.
+
The origins of the God Hand are mysterious and unknown, but its members are known to have once been human before using a crimson behelit during a solar eclipse that occurs once every 216 years. Once they do this, they transcend their current status and are reborn as demonic angels and emissaries of the Idea of Evil. In order to do this however, they must offer a sacrifice of their loved ones and their souls will be used to fashion a new form.
They can now manifest on the physical plane thanks to the World Creation.

Since then, the God Hand has served as overseers of humanity and have shaped many events of human history while also recruiting new members into the organization and gaining servants in humans who become [[Apostles]], having an absolute ruling over them. Guts, the main protagonist of the series, first saw the God Hand when they allowed [[Griffith]] to join them and had him reborn as Femto in exchange for all of the Band of the Hawk members to be sacrificed for his rebirth.

The God Hand are the main antagonistic faction of the manga and anime Berserk and are a powerful quintet of reality-warping angels (or demons), each corresponding to a finger or thumb, directly below the Idea of Evil in power and authority.
